PostPosted: Thu Sep 01, 2005 8:08 pm    Post subject: Need RTP300 Help. Router unstable Reply with quote Back to top

Hi, I just got Vonage a few weeks ago.and am having a few slight problems.

Right now I only have my internet going to the RTP300, and then to my PC. Though it works beautifully, it seems my Internet conection becomes unstable as the day goes on.

It gets so bad that some P2P software keeps connecting to new servers every minute because it lost connection to the previous (beforehand I could be on one server for days before switching). If I power off the RTP300, it fixes it, only to slowly degrade over time again.

I have 1.00.43 as the Firmware....

Is there anything I can do to?

I also have a Linksys router I was using before all this. But when I plugged the Vonage box into it, Any incoming voice was VERY choppy, even if I wasn't downloading anything. People on the other end said my voice was crystal clear though. Seems the data was having a hard time making its way back or something?

If I can get my old router to work WITH vonage's RTP, then it should solve all my issues.... Though a solution for the RTP300 by itself would be fine too....

I just got started with Vonage, have the RTP300 also. Until just a few days before the Vonage router came in I was using a Microsoft MN-700 router but I happened to be in Futureshop and saw a great deal on the Linksys WRT54GC wireless rouer, $49 CDN, so I grabbbed one. Replaced the MS router with the Linksys and BAM! up and running virtually plug-&-play. Then next day the RTP 300 came in from Vonage - plugged it into an open ethernet port on the router and after a couple minutes configuring itself the phone port became active and it's been running flawlessly for several days now - no problems with either telephone or internet service.

There are a couple of messages in the forums suggesting the RTP300's router section is not quite ready for primetime. You might put your old router back in service and connecting the RTP as a client off of it, the rest of your network communicating with the 'net through your router as well. I mentioned the new one I got because if your old router has any performance issues, at only $50 from either FutureShop or Best Buy it's hard to go wrong with a new one.

Well, I would buy a new router, but the current one has been wrking fine before the RTP300 was plugged into it.

If I was to buy a new router, it would be a Belkin Pre-N router for my upcoming Laptop purchase... At 190$ CDN, it's not an easy upgrade to justify since I don't even have the Laptop yet....

It is possible that from time to time the same ip is being assigned on your network to more than one device. So if this part isn't solid you may wish to look into it.

Whatever router is the first one after your modem, you can use as a dhcp server. Make sure the second one has dhcp turned off, and in the example of two linksys routers I setup my second one's Lan Ip address as 192.168.1.2, while the first one of course defaulted to the standard linkysy 192.168.1.1 and ran the dhcp server.

For the Wan connection type of the second one I also told it to obtain an ip automatically. I can configure either router by entering either ip in the browser such as. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2 .

It wasn't necessary, as it worked without, but to be safe I told the first router to assign a static dhcp address to the second one of 192.168.1.50 The range for the dhcp assignments was to be from 192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.100. This is an unnecessary step, but just a housekeeping exercise for me.

In basic, if you follow the other paragraphs, any device you plug into the routers will be assigned an ip from the first route running the dhcp server. Even if a device is plugged into the second router (192.168.1.2) the gateway in that pc will be the first router 192.168.1.1.

Hope I haven't muddied the waters.
